All licensed architects in the State of Missouri must complete 24 hours of Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every two years. Renewals are biennial. All architects originally licensed in an even year will be required to renew their license by December 31st every even year. Architects licensed in odds years renew December 31st of odds years. Architects licensed less than one year by the first renewal date are not required to report CEUs.
Of the 24 hours of continued education, at least 16 have to be in health, safety and welfare (HSW). It is acceptable to have all 24 in HSW. A maximum of 12 hours can be carried over to the next renewal cycle.
It is not necessary to send in Certificates of Completion with the renewal notices, but be sure to keep them in a safe location for at least four years. Audits will be randomly conducted each two-year renewal period to insure compliance with the Board’s requirements. Upon request, the Board may select you for audit and you will be contacted to provide proof that you completed the required continuing education.
Failure to renew shall automatically cause the license to expire and be void. Holders of expired licenses have no rights or privileges under the license and leave themselves vulnerable with no legal recourse should something happen.
